These are all non-PC terms.

Hoe: Sorority girl who get drunk and sleep with anyone
Slut: Will sleep with anyone when not drunk
Prostitute: Slut with business sense
Call girl: Educated prostitute
Courtesan: Call girl with political connections
Hooker: Prostitute who’s in it for the fun
Women who marry for money: Courtesan who’s found “religion”

I thought the thing was to be able to sex with anyone at any time, without moral consequences or judgement?

What’s the difference between a man who pays for a hooker and a man who marries for sex? I believe that knowing the answer to that will help with the answer for the original question.

The married woman has access to all the privileges granted a wife, including access to male authority. All the others (except maybe a courtesan) are considered seedy and depraved. There might not be a a fundamental difference in their actions and behaviors, but the view from the outside world is quite different.

This is not a flame. I am wondering what you mean, @tinyfaery, about access to male authority being a privilege granted to a wife.

What about men who aspire to find a rich wife or girlfriend?

Nothing….. at the end of the day they are all the same.

I think a guy who marries for sex is just an idiot. thats the difference lol Why buy the whole plane when all you want are the peanuts.

Also whats wrong with looking for a rich girl friend. Guys aren’t allowed to seek security too? is there something wrong with desiring security along with a relationship shesh. obviously if thats the only thing they want then yeah but thats usually not the case.

I’m with laureth on this one. If you could come over and make my wife see that access to my authority is a privilege I’ll give you free cookies for life!

There is a certain position granted to a wife. A hooker doesn’t have access to the money and power of a husband, but a wife does. A wife is respected when she walks in a room on her husband’s arm, a hooker, probably not. A hooker can’t join the country club or go to the company party and make her man look good. And a such, a wife has access to all the spoils that come with power and authority.

Hehehe, the Las Vegas Country Club has wife and hoe days I’ve been told :)

But fun aside, now I get it…

laureth's avatar

@tinyfaery – thanks, it makes more sense now. Also, reminds me a little of The Handmaid’s Tale.

tinyfaery's avatar

Yes, Laureth. Exactly. One of my absolutely favorite books.

gailcalled's avatar

Me also, even though it gave me the creeps. The movie was stunning as well.

tinyfaery's avatar

The movie was great.

bythebay's avatar

I agree, great book & movie. Somewhat disturbing though.

laureth's avatar

I think it was supposed to be disturbing. A cautionary tale, not unlike Orwell’s 1984.

Margaret Atwood is a long time feminist. This book is taught in college courses to demonstrate the cultural construct of gender and how women are objectified by having an identity that is tied to a man. Reproductive ownership is also a huge theme, obviously. Who really controls reproduction, the body that reproduces or a person/group that has power and authority over that body? Juicy stuff.
